Hey there! I'm Laura.
Welcome to my little corner of the interwebs where I like to keep a jumble of every worldly thing that I delight in and love. You'll find posts on my outfits, makeup, hair, the books I read, the food I like to cook, the comics I obsess over, simple DIYs, and the goings on in my little life. Sometimes, I share photos of my kitties and hammie, Gandalf the Grey.
I'm a crafter and small business owner, and making things consumes my days. I stitch, knit, sketch, and crochet delightful things to wear and gift. Do check out my store! :)
Style-wise, I love wearing thrifted, self-made, and vintage items. I don't shop nearly as often as I used to, and I've grown to appreciate quality and ethics as I've gotten older. My personal style revolves around the idea of working with what I already have and styling for my own shape. When I have ample time, I like to sew my own clothes.
If you're a long-time reader of my blog, you will already know that I spend as much time reading as I do crafting. My absolute favorite books include Moby Dick, Paradise Lost, Candide, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Metamorphoses, and Frankenstein. Though it may seem that I'm a huge fan of works by dead authors, I do enjoy a lot of contemporary works as well. My recent favorites are The Night Circus, My Beloved Brontosaurus, and The Day the World Discovered the Sun.
I also love reading comic books. My current favorite ongoing series include Future Foundation, Hawkeye, Animal Man, Saga, and Journey into Mystery. Sometimes, my love for comics spills over to my outfit choices. It can't be helped.
